Skeptism over Berning Ntlemeza's controversial appointment

Yesterday we received confirmation by police minister Nathi Nhleko that Major General Berning Ntlemeza has been appointed

This is a decision that has been met with much controversy, after judge Elias Matojane said in a judgement that Ntlemeza is biased, lacks integrity and honour as well as made false statements under oath.

In this position I am not going to protect anyone. I am here to serve the people of this country.

You have the right to run to court. I am going to make sure I deliver as I have been appointed by this government.

Director of the Helen Suzman Foundation, Francis Antonie emphasises the ruling that Ntlemeza is dishonest and lacks integrity.

I would hope that the Minister would've delayed the appointment until the courts have ruled on this matter. The Minister has appeals, it's before the SCA. Why not wait until these findings have been confirmed before appointing ?

Francis Antonie, Director of the Helen Suzman Foundation

Antonie believes that this decision doesn't instill confidence in the new head.
